Thornton Hough Thornton Hough

“Set in lush pastures and fine woodland, Thornton Hough is a lovely example of village life. This historical part of Wirral is full of history and charm, where you can take in country walks, relax at one of its many tea shops or discover the cottages and fine buildings. The village green is the hub of village life, and is surrounded by two churches, the village blacksmith and a mixture of redbrick and half timbered mock Tudor houses, a setting which typifies the archetypal 'old England' rural village atmosphere.

Thornton Hough is also home to the award-winning Thornton Hall Hotel and Spa, Mere Brook House (a 5-star guesthouse), and the Seven Stars Inn, making Thornton Hough an ideal destination for a weekend break or great day out.” source:
